The Best Laid Plans...

I had this post all planned out for yesterday and then for some reason Blogger wouldn't upload my pics. Anyone else have the same problem?

Three different subjects in today's post as I haven't posted for a while. The first is for White Wednesday (yes, yes, I know it's Thursday - see above excuse) over at Kathleen's Faded Charm.

I am proud to announce that after five or six years and a season later than expected, my magnolia has finally flowered:

Just the one flower and I think the rain has battered it a little, but it's here and I'm not complaining. There's also one more bud about to burst open. Let's hope it's a sign of things to come next year.

Secondly, I'm contributing two pics for Barb's (Bella Vista) 'Show Us Your Roosters' party.

This chap was found in a charity shop. His head is on a long spring and I had to supply new legs using chopsticks...

The next guy was bought in a restaurant. The owners were selling them for charity and they're made from recycled plastic bags:

I think he looks a bit suspicious, but I assure you he's been well treated.

And finally, going way back to last year and my very first post ever:

Pal Eddie has returned and my walk-in wardrobe is being created as I type. Here's a pic from the first day's work:

OK, so we're not talking a Sarah Jessica Parker-sized wardrobe here, but it's going to be fun and will release some wardrobe space in our bedroom (M can have some clothes space now, bless).

More photos as the work progresses.

Have a happy week.
